Best Low Vision Aids for Macular Degeneration

February 09, 2016

Best Low Vision Aids for Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration can be a crippling visual impairment. Luckily the right low vision aid can make a big difference and improve the quality of your life overall. Here are three tips to follow when purchasing a low vision aid for Macular Degeneration and other visual impairments:

Tip #1: Look for products that are simple, light and easy to hold.

Most magnifiers you will find at big retailers are clunky and heavy to hold in your hand. It may not seem like a big deal, but as a senior citizen who uses a magnifier everyday, having a light, simple device can make all the difference.

Tip #2: Buy the right magnifier for your activities.

Reading: If you spend a lot of time reading books, magazines, and letters, purchasing a magnifier specifically designed for reading is important.

Crafting: Handicraft, sewing, knitting, and needlework for long periods of time can strain your eyes and you shouldn't have to give up the hobbies you love. Using a Helping Hand magnifier or a hands free magnifier with stand can make your tasks easier.

On the Go: It's not always easy to carry a large magnifier with you when you need to read something on the go. Using a small, portable low vision aid is key.

Everyday Use: A high quality, lightweight, all purpose magnifier is essential for anyone dealing with vision impairment. We have you covered.

Tip #3: Choose the right vision aids for your eyes.

Macular Degeneration and other vision impairments can affect people differently. Some people get recurring or permanent blind spots in different parts of their eyes. Choose a magnifier than has the right diameter for your specific impairment.

Our products are engineered for seniors with low vision. Please don't hesitate to browse our products or ask us any questions regarding which magnifier may be the right fit for you.
